*Hello from Sid and the Critique club*

A fascinating image that meets the challenge fully.

A great and original interpretation of the challenge theme, I admire your approach taking simple everyday objects and transforming them the way you have, I bet you had a lot of fun doing this. The end result is good but I think it could have been improved upon with some careful cloning to remove the unwanted light leaks so that your image would just have the most effective and desirable light related elements alone. Where the grater stands on the table and the right hand edge all have leaks of unwanted light.

What I would really like is for the elongated light on the table to be a much more significant part of the composition but I cant quite imagine how you would have done it to be honest. I'm imagining a wide angle lens with the light forming the foreground exaggerated by the perspective from the wide angle of the lens leading to the more distant source of light from the grater in the background. I can see the composition but I'm not entirely sure it would have been possible.

Anyway, thanks for an intriguing entry, Sid
